Chocolate, Eggless Baking

Vegan Eggless Dark Chocolate Walnut Crinkle Brownies | Christmas recipes | Eggless Brownie recipes

Brownies and celebrations are definitely in for Xmas. I wanted to
give the usual buttery brownies a skip and go for healthy version. I saw these
brownies in a magazine at a parlour many months ago and clicked the recipe on my phone (never
mind the receptionist who was giving me looks :D). They seemed perfect, and boy
they surely were. My neighbours were also happy eating them, and so were we on
the healthy offering. Dark chocolate, Brown sugar, Wholewheat, Butterless,
Eggless, almost Vegan – you really cant go wrong with these
healthy combos.


Yes, you guessed it right – the theme for all 3 days this week is
chocolate, and after a mug of Hot chocolate yesterday, its time for some Dark
Chocolate walnut Crinkle brownies. Do indulge and you would walk away a happy
person :-))

Prep time : 20 mins | Baking time : 25 mins | Makes : 12-14 large or 16 medium square brownies.

Cuisine : American | Type : Dessert or Snack



  • Wholewheat flour – 1.5 cups
  • Baking powder – 3/4 tsp
  • Baking soda – 1/2 tsp
  • Cinnamon powder – 1/2 TBSP
  • Cocoa powder – 1/2 cup (I
    used valrhona – extra dark)
  • Brown sugar – 1 cup (packed)
  • Ripe Bananas  (large) – 4 nos
  • Oil – 3/4 cup + 3 tsp
  • Vanilla essence – 1/2 tsp
  • Lemon Juice – 1 TBSP
  • Walnuts – 1/4 cup – chopped
  • Icing Sugar – 1/4 cup (for dusting)



  1. Sift first 5 ingredients three times in a large bowl : Dry
  2. Beat ripe bananas (chopped) and brown sugar well (I powdered brown
    sugar cubes and add it to the banana puree). Now add lemon juice, oil and beat well. Add
    essence, mix and keep aside.
  3. Dust the chopped walnuts in a floured bowl (add 1 tsp of flour and
    mix the nuts well). Mix in these walnuts in the flour and give it a vigorous
  4. Now preheat oven to 170 Deg C / 350 deg F
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture little by little and
    mix gently. Add extra oil (3 tsp) if required. mine was a little dry at the
    beginning and therefore I added oil in batches.
  6. Pour mixture into a prepared and lined tray.
  7. Bake at 170 for 20 mins and 155 for 4-6 mins (keep an eye after 15
    mins and tent the baking dish with foil if you feel its browing too fast).
  8. Cool a bit and unmould. The top would have crinkled a bit (and
    thats why the name :D)
  9. Dust with icing sugar and cut into shapes desired. 
  10. Serve warm
